you do, we were told way back in 1993 when we were still planning
the expedition, "document the adventure any way you can. Even
if you have to beg, borrow or steal a camera or some other recording
device, the visual and written stories will be the few tangible

(most of) this advice to heart, the expedition has now acquired
considerable media assets to use in a variety of different ways
to generate profile and revenue. The 700 hours of video footage,
22,000 photographs and scores of journal entries both in personal
diaries and on this website are being used by our media and
education partners for a variety of different end-uses, including
a television broadcast series, internet and broadband content
delivery and educational titles for use in the classroom.
